    Did anyone watch the 2020 AKC Invitational? It’s available online!

    My favorite dog run was Super Lotto in the 20 inch final. (see about min 13 of—20-inch?ctx=/watch//7/5762/events/2020-akc-agility-invitational).

    What a great team! Dog is just bonkers happy to be running. So fun! I want that for my dog!

      I did!!! Had a few students in the finals and wanted to watch the great variety of breeds.

      Super Lotto is a student at my facility and I was so happy to see him make finals. He barely missed the past two years and got to run as the white dog. He was so excited to make finals and the joy ran right down to his dog.

    Could you give me a reference or two on leads When to pay attention to them, how to handle them, when lead change is needed , how to do that… etc etc

    • Jennifer Crank says:

      The basics are this: if you are running a straight line, the dog will be on the lead of the side you are on. If you are on their right, they will run on their right lead. If you are on a curve, the lead is dictated by the curve, not you. A left hand turn requires the dog to be on the left lead.

      To learn more about dog mechanics as they pertain to jumping, I’d suggest Linda Mecklenburg’s Masters Jumping Skills book. The first three chapters are just education for the handler and no actual drills for the dog.

    Have to admit I only tried the 8-9-10 serp from the A-frame side but it worked really well and I had no trouble making the push to the triple. Flat out running is easier (and faster)
    than running and “twirling”!
